as you turn to me and say, take my breath away. martha: there we go. defense secretary chuck hagel has a former top gun as his new wingman. christine fox will take over as acting deputy defense secretary starting today. she was reportedly the inspiration for the kelly mcgillis character in top gun back in 1986. she helped the navy develop tactics for defending aircraft carriers and instructed some of the young, hot shot pilots, but she says she was never romantically involved with any of those pilots, for the record. that is very interesting. and we are having a debate here about whether orç not top gun s a good movie, is a bad movie or is a good bad movie which is its own very special category. bill: so is it a, b or c? martha: i think it's a good bad movie. you can't help yourself. if it's on, you're going to want to watch it -- bill: cheese factor was pretty high though. give me that, right?

that needs to be done. the majority leader knows that will be our position. do not see the defense authorization bill. i am hopeful the senate will move on that intelligence authorization. the senate has passed comprehensive immigration reform will. we are very disappointed on this side of the aisle that the senate bill has not been put on the floor. our bill or one of the four bills out of committee. it was supported by the republican party and the judiciary committee. they have not been brought to the floor. we believe immigration reform is a critically important action for the congress to take. we hope anyone of those options would be brought to the table. the senate has passed in a bipartisan way the end of discrimination in employment. we talk about jobs. we talk about economic opportunity. passed that bill. that is not on the agenda either. i noticed we do have an extension bill that has been specifically reference. we will get to a debate on that next week. we have a suspension bill we have been urging that is reported out of committee that passed by 350 votes. it simply say
with regularity. with the exception of public calendars, there are standing meetings for the secretary of defense, state, and the treasury this president has, but he meets with other secretaries in one on ones and small groups all the time. i would note that those calendars may never show a meeting i have with the president. i had to yesterday. that is how it works. >> a final question on nelson mandela. what people will be thinking about, when we consider the life of nelson mandela and the challenges that exist in our own country, what lessons can washington learn? i know you had conversations in the white house and what you think the message we can learn is. >> i think the president put it very well yesterday in the remarks he made when he was in south africa earlier this year about the remarkable example that nelson mandela set when he was released from prison and made clear that he would embrace those the jail him, and he would seek those to help build a south africa that judged every person by his or her character and not by his or her skin color. i think that spirit of reconciliation that t
defense authorization act, the bill that's passed every year in every congress for more than 50 years without fail. we do not have a farm bill. we do not have a duck fix that they have to pass basically every year for medicare. we do not have a housing bill. we do not have a transportation bill. we do not have a water bill. we do not have any of the things they pass every year when there are good congresses and bad congresses, gridlock or not. we cones have any of the normal baseline stuff done. we don't have a bill setting defense policy, we don't have the bain pentagon bill. we have that every year, even in really bad years, but we don't have that this year, because it was shut down the government year. it was shut down the government, repeal obama care year. that's what we did all year, and now we're not doing that anymore. and now nothing is done. and time is almost up. and the question is, will they get it together? can they get it together to do something that isn't repeal obama care before the end of the year? what they said they wanted to do was immigration reform. remember? e
football and the republicans are like a football team with no offense and only a defense. they just keep trying to stop and never want to advance the ball. they have no strategies but they do have multiple defensive strategies. the repeal movement is now dead. the attack the website movement is slowly going away. but now we have a battle raging on in the courts. new york times notes a fresh wave of legal challenges to the laws playing out in courtrooms as conservatives make the case that mr. obama has overstepped his authority. the opposition never sleeps. >> they don't sleep and it is their organizing principle because i think for grass roots tea party conservatives and don't forget, some of the tea party popped up as obama care was being passed back in 2009 and 2010. there are some people who genuinely see it as the last big reach of government especially on something as personal as health care. there's an emotional sometimes bordering on paranoid fuel that some of the republicans are tapping into with that. and it's the only thing that seems to stir their base. and as far as whatever
defense. what did that nexus look like? >> it's good that you put it that way, anti-anti-apartheid because that's exactly what these people were. they would never actually come out and try to rationalize apartheid or try to sell apartheid to an american audience. i mean, that basically couldn't be done. but there were plenty of conservatives that had other ways of rationalizing it, the other one being the cold war, right? south africa was surrounded by hostile countries. if you asked a south african government to describe its enemies, p would always say they're communists. everyone surrounding us is a communist, you know. the anc is communist. and we've got to, you know, to struggle to defeat communism. in fact, it was an interesting country, you know, the apartheid regime. in some ways they were -- you know, they had this vision of the world as a gigantic communist conspiracy that was very familiar to a lot of american conservatives. >> i want to look at -- congresswoman, i want to read this headline, they put this up today. this was kind of an ab amazing revelation that came out in 1995.
to take pre-emptive nuclear reaction in its own self-defense. i don't know what the israelis are going to do, but no one should think this agreement is fundamentally going to change anything. >> six months and counting and we'll stay on it almost every sunday at this time. good to see you. thank you. >> thank you. >> ambassador, thank you so much. >> heads may be starting to roll in the wake of the disast rg rollout of obama care. a top maryland official in charge of that state's obama care exchange is reportedly resigning now. and this would be the first official to lose a job in light of the troubles surrounding the insurance exchanges. national correspondent steve sun somy joins me now from washington with more on the story. >> not only the federal obama care website that had its difficulties. some sof the state-run exchanges got off to a rocky start. rebecca pearce resigned friday. according to our affiliate in baltimore, some are suggesting she was forced out of office after two years on the job. in maryland, they signed up just over 3,000 people by november 23rd, and about a week
he wanted them to sort of roll back an air defense zone that china established unilaterally and is threatening japanese and even american commercial aircraft that you have to announce before you enter that space that you have to announce to china you're doing so. it's caused a lot of turmoil and headaches and so the vice president really made that clear. the other big thing in the trip was for the obama administration to make clear their so-called pivot to asia is still a viable priority for them, president obama had to cancel a trip to asia during the government shutdown so the strp was there to say we're still here and still will be strong in the region. >> i'm going to go ahead and change the topic quickly and on a personal note i wanted to ask you i heard that you got into a skirmish with reporters in japan. what happened. >> it was a little misunderstanding. i was the pool reporter meaning i was responsible to sending a report to all journalists in japan and u.s. so i was trying to see what was going on when the vice president met directly with prime minister abe in jap

of the law. some here contend that the president's decision not to defend the defense of marriage act violated the take care clause. in fact, the president made a judgment subsequently vindicated by the united states supreme court that the act was unconstitutional. while the case was pending, he continued to comply with the law. the president's decision not to defend the law was not novel. indeed, congress itself recognized this possibility.p congress understood that sometimes the administration's duty to take care that the laws be faithfully executed might include recognizing that a particular statute is unconstitutional. the constitution is as we are told in article 6 of the constitution, the supreme law of the land. presidents are required to follow it. past administrations have exercised their discretion not to defend a law that they have deemed unconstitutional. for example, the acting solicitor general at the time, john roberts, now the chief justice of the united states, refused to defend a law that he believed to be unconstitutional in the 1990 case of metzer broadcasting vers
rebel group during his tenure as the ministry of defense. he ultimately entered politics and perhaps he will tell us all why he made a career change in rows to be present at columbia in 2010. he was elected for four-year term extending until august 2014 obtaining more than 9 million votes, the highest amount obtained by any candidate in the history of colombian democracy. two weeks ago he announced he will run for re-election in next year's presidential election saying he wants to be able to finish the peace process he started. president sub two campaigned in 2010 on a platform to carry on the offensive against the leftist guerrillas that have waged war against the government for decades. as president however he opened talks with the revolutionary armed forces of colombia or farc. negotiators reached a draft agreement on november 6 as 1 aspect of the talks and we expect president santos will tell us about the negotiations in the chances for an ultimate peace agreement. the peace negotiations could well be a central issue in next year's elections with one leading opponent calling for an
declares an air defense zone, and the other respond aggressively in the view of the first side and you get a spiral of escalation. what is different is in the cold war we had no ties with the soviet union. they were audiologically opposed. they had a closed-off economy, they were politically and militarily opposed. with china, we depend on china. every object we pick up says made in china, and china depends on us. what we have here is a situation in which our economic interests, our political interests in many areas, our interests in solving global problems like climate change and piracy are aligned. what we need to do is create diplomatic channels that find ways to resolve the territorial issues without letting it spin out of control. if you think about world war i, nobody wanted to go to war. but, you know, there was a fascination in serbia, and as it escalated, the sort of logic of alliance meant that they ended up in a conflict. that is what secretary of state john kerry is trying to prevent. >> your foreign policy service, your greatest fame may have come from an article in "the at la

the department of defense was run as efficiently as this. our deficit would be much lower. but among snap households with at least one working age nondisabled adult, more than half work. more than half work. and more than 80% work in the year before or after receiving snap. now, the legislation that the house republican leadership rammed through this congress and is now part of a negotiation on the farm bill, would cut the program by close to $40 billion. that would result in nearly four million americans losing access to snap next year, including working families with children, seniors, and veterans. nearly 170,000 veterans would lose their benefits. in addition, 210,000 children and these families would also lose free school meals. these cuts would come on top of the significant benefit reduction already experienced by all snap recipients as a result of the american recovery act moneys running out. and i would say to my colleagues that cut that went into effect on november 1 means is that the average family of four would see a reduction of about $36 per month in their snap benefit. we a
